ab: Summary: To teach mathematical modelling to prospective upper secondary
teachers is not trivial. Since the Swedish curriculum from 2011
recommends mathematical modelling for all students who study major
courses in mathematics in upper secondary school, only the very young
students in the teacher training programs have some experience of
mathematical modelling. Up until now, there has not been adequate
material for students who are in upper secondary school or for student
what want to be mathematics teachers in upper secondary school. With a
recently published book and with adequate technical support,
prospective teachers of today can be taught and learn mathematical
modelling. When given the opportunity, most of them quite unexpectedly
selected mathematical modelling examples to explain social science
phenomena.
